Serotta (steel frame)
Shock: Judy Rock Shock (recently rebuilt)
Derailleurs: XTR with grip shift
Frame size: Medium
3 chain rings up front
9 speed cassette in rear
Custom built wheel set (26 inch wheels)

It is a great older, sturdy bike in good running shape. It is nice for commuting or could be a great platform for an electric conversion. $400 or best offer.
Somebody should be running at breakneck speed to get this.

What a deal!
Mark Nobilette is a very skilled builder with many years of experience.
If this were my size I'd be begging for facilitation.

Yeah, my thoughts, too but this Litton's clearly identified. I wonder if it's the same seller (based on "Mission District" location, it's possible, but there are a lot of folks in that district)

^^^^ Definitely a different bike (different lug work), but I think the suggestion is that the mystery bike in Doug's thread might be another Litton.

If that's the supposition I'd throw cold water on that (I subscribe to that one being either a Peter Johnson or Tom Ritchey), but if anybody wanted Ed Litton's word I'm sure he could look at those pix and declare it "Not mine" in a hot second. But I'm so sure he did not build the "Mystery bike" I would not even waste his time. OTOH he could have (possibly) been the painter of that Mystery frame, but would probably have at least tired to add the appropriate decals if he had been.

Good if you're looking for a small bike, obviously, but $175 for the parts alone (especially the Campagnolo Omega rims) might be borderline worth it...

Lotus Legend - 47cm - $175


https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/...334860922.html




Lotus Legend Road Bike for sale. 47cm - Ideal for shorter people.

Center-to-center measurements
18" seat tube
21.5" top tube

Campagnolo Omega rims
Campy hubs and skewers
7-spd BSC freewheel
Shimano 600 headset

Shimano brifters
Shimano 3x crank

Please note that the shifters are not the smoothest!! They work, but sometimes require a delicate touch to get them to engage. I've ridden with them like this for the past three years and rarely have any real issues.

I started to look at that this evening. I had the seatpost out to measure it and the seat tube dimensions, and happened to stare down at the bottom bracket. There was an unmistakeable Campagnolo logo. Hmmm... Next I took a look at the adjustable cup:



Even stranger... I need to lay my hands on a 16mm socket to remove the crank bolts. My guess is the Campy spindle and the Sugino adjustable cup aren't meant for each other (spindle meant for thick rifled NR cups, but with a thin Sugino cup). Who knows what the fixed cup is. Maybe TA. Maybe Stronglight. Could be anything French threaded I suppose.

Procured, it was listed a couple weeks ago for $125, I sent half a dozen emails, crickets.

Then it pops back up for $100, sent an email, nuthin, sent another, "oh sorry, they were all going to my spam folder.", ok, I want to come see it, went and seen it, done.

Really wish it was my size or closer to it. Maybe someone has a big one to trade.

It is the nicest bottom of the line frame I think I have ever seen, lots of chrome, all good and in good shape, some crappy parts, Campy GT RD, tektro levers, etc., some good, Uni CP brakes and all the bits, plain, original chrome HS in good shape, Campy crappy/good/ok FD and shifters, cable guide, and not sure about the hubs, one Gnutti skewer but no markings on the hubs, seem to be ok matched set but..., rims are something ORO.

That's big. Pretty sure all mine have either been 14 or 15mm.
